Visual Perception Assessments: MVPT/TVPS measures nonmotor visual perception in children by testing visual perception without requiring a motor response.
MVPT/TVPS examine the following perceptual skills: Discrimination, Visual Memory, Form Constancy, Sequential Memory, Figure ground, Visual Closure
Discrimination Ability to detect a difference of distinction between one item or picture and another.
Visual Memory Ability to remember a shape or word/recall the info when necessary. Letters-> words->sentences->paragraphs.
Form Constancy Ability to realize/recognize that forms, letters, and numbers are the same or constant whether they’re moved, turned, or changed to a different size.
